Rollin’ With Rodrigo Teixeira

[This excerpt was taken from Issue 52]

In Issue 50 we introduced you to Rodrigo Teixeira and his globe trotting ways. Jiu-jitsu has lead him to every corner of the planet. Rodrigo is an accomplished grappler himself with over 25 years of jiu-jitsu under his belt. In those decades of training he’s rolled or competed against many of the absolute legends in the art. On a recent trip Rodrigo found himself in Jiu-Jitsu Magazine Headquarters and showed us a few of his favorite techniques. Enjoy!

Jim Lawson is a US Marine Corps veteran, jiu-jitsu black belt under Rodrigo Teixeira, who loves to travel and teach jiu-jitsu to anyone who will listen. He has a lot of other experiences and credentials but who really cares about all that. He’d love to keep in touch with you. You can stay in touch with him either through email or on his social media (where his numbers could really use a boost).
